Bible Reading: Mark 10: 6-9

Memory Verse:  Because of this, a man leaves father and mother, and in marriage he becomes one flesh with a woman—no longer two individuals, but forming a new unity. Mark 10:7 (MSG)

Grace be multiplied unto Dr Olugbenga. Be blessed:

1. Most people cheat on a relationship when they start paying more attention to what they think they’re missing rather than focusing on what they already have. If the grass is looking greener on the other side of the fence, it’s time to water your own yard.

2. Get comfortable with gently and patiently teaching your spouse how to love you. Don’t expect them to just know. Real stable love can be taught and learned. Loving someone consistently is a growth process. It’s not fairytale.

3. One reason some people enter marriage and become frustrated is because they go in expecting so much from their spouse while demanding so little from themselves. Want to be happy? Demand much from yourself and expect little from your spouse – you will not be disappointed!

4. Never discuss your spouse’s failures with your family.

5. What are stalemates in marriage? It’s when one spouse says, “I’m not doing _______ for them until my spouse starts doing _____ for me.” Someone in the marriage must step up and say, “I’ll do ______ for them, even if they don’t do ______ for me.” Stalemates are marriage killers.

6. A healthy marriage requires you to choose to be your spouse’s lover.

7. 5 pillars of marriage: God-centredness, Effective Communication, Finance, In-laws, and Sex. Take care of these five and find rest for your soul.

8. Your cell phone has already replaced your camera, your calendar, your alarm clock, your GPS, etc. Don’t let it replace your marriage and family. Pay more attention to the people in the room with you, than you do to the people on your phone.

9. Belittling your spouse with your words in public or private is verbal abuse and should have NO place in marriage. Your spouse is never to be your verbal punching bag or the butt of your jokes.

10. No other person should have the same connection or closeness to you as your spouse.

Quote: Marriage is the sharing of lives. You need to work out the process. 

Prophetic Decree: I curse every external and internal influence working against your marriage, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus 

1. I command any negative presence in my home to depart now, in Jesus name.

2. Evil territorial influences around my home, be subdued by the power in the Blood of the lamb of God, in Jesus name.

3. Any foundational evil curse affecting my marriage, be renounced by the power in the Blood of Jesus, in Jesus name.

4. Lord, I repent of every way I have opened the door for the devil in my marriage, in Jesus name.

5. Holy Spirit, revive my family altar. Make it too hot for the devil to handle, in Jesus name.
